Hi there! Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Here comes a card I have made both for Maja Design and Magnolia. I have will also show you how I made the moon and the pop-up effect.

Vintage-Spring-Basics-P

Vintage-Baby-P

For this project I have used the beautiful Vintage Spring Basics collection and the Vintage Baby collection. Now to the little step by step:

1

I started with making the moon. First I used my compasses. I made a circle with a diameter of 16 cm. Then I drew the rest of it by hand like this. I used hard cardboard for this.

2

Then I painted the edges of the moon with white Gesso.

3

Then I drew the moon on some Maja Design pattern papers (two times, for the front and the back).

4

Then I inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

5

Place the baby on the moon.

6

Fold a paper strip like a rectangle and fasten it like this. Make two so that the moon will have a good grip inside the card. (You can see this better on the finished card)

7

To decorate the card, I have cut out some shapes from Maja papers: heart background, celebration, star tag, (flag and) cloud, castle. The dies are Magnolia DooHickeys.

I will now show you some details of the finished card, and how the pop-up looks like.

This is a baptism card for a girl, so I have used papers in pink tones. I have also made two postmark stamps with Maja papers and a Magnolia die. The main image is a stamp from Stempelglede.

The pennants are made with a die from Magnolia, and I have fasten the letters on to them. I have used a beige Maja paper here.

The teddybears are from the bottom of a Maja paper. I have used gold embossing on the flag. The text is made with a stamp from Stempelglede.

Hi there! How are you? Have you seen the new edition of the Sofiero papers? They even comes with monocromes papers. For my card I have used this gorgeous collection.

Sofiero-K

I have coloured up Tilda (Magnolia) here with some yellow/greenish colours. As I wanted the paper bag to have a fresh, springlike touch. The Sofiero papers are perfect for any romantic Spring card.

The clipboard frame around the image is from Wycinanka, called Apple bloss. I have put it up on 3D foam.

IMG_7073

For the text I have used gold embossing, and it is from Stempelglede “Dear Confirmand”. I have fastened it to a paperstraw.

Hi there! Here I am with an easel card. I have used some lovely papers from the Vintage Summer Basics collection. I wanted to give it a little hint of retro and vintage look. I hope you like it!

Vintage-Summer-Basics3

I have painted two girls from Magnolia that might be leaving or they are saying goodbye to someone close to them. As the animal lover I am, I had to have a cute dog in the scene too.

I made a propell with dies from Magnolia. All dies used are from the Vintage box, third edition.

The postcard from Paris, is cut out from the pattern paper called Minnen.
